CBS: Statistics or lies?

CBS published a rosy demographic report: the ratio of Jewish births in Israel has increased to 75 percent. This is alarming—Arabs have become a quarter of the Israeli population.

At least 15 percent of those whom CBS counts as Jews are not Jewish according to traditional standards. That reduces the number of Jewish births to 65 percent, so that Jews assuredly have lost their supermajority status.

The report also glosses over the reductions in Haredi birth rates in response to reduced subsidies. The economic crisis, which left the Haredi community without much in the way of donations, also affects its growth rate negatively. Arabs, whose standard of living is lower, are satisfied with the current level of subsidies, and their population grows.

The CBS report also ignores hundreds of thousands of Arab residents, who are not citizens of Israel, and a million illegal migrants.

The average Arab family is 4.9 people, as opposed to 3.7 among Jews. A third of all Arab families have more than four children; the CBS report ignores polygamous families in which each wife is registered as single mother. In Tel Aviv, a third of all Jewish families are childless.

It should not suprise you that CBS does not report the truth. Look at our presdential election and what became of that. Dont expect a fair shake from CBS NBC ABC CNN MSNBC or America anymore as I dont see it in this environment or administration. We elected a Muslim Man who smiles at us as he says he is christian yet went to a church that preached hate. Smiling faces tell lies and stab you in the back as they do it. You know that you deal with the Arabs everyday and in their koran it says it is ok to look u in the eye, promise anything but dont have to keep that promise because u are not muslim. You know this you deal with them all the time. No honor among Arabs. Someday America is gonna find this out the hard way. Throughout history nations that tumble always blame the Jews and Im afraid that america wont stand with you as she always has. My heart breaks at this as I am to the death a faithful supporter of Israel. I serve Jehovah Jirad, I am a christian, yes, with different belief than you but My beliefs come from you and your history. I know that the future of America depends on how we stand with Israel. Pray we stand and dont faint. I pray for you as well but I know that Jehovah is in control and ISRAEL will survive and be forever. Rieandra
